Mini French Onion Parmesan Crisps

Crispy Parmesan shells encase a creamy whipped ricotta and caramelized onion filling. The perfect appetizer!

Ingredients

1
onion
1
cup ricotta cheese
1
tablespoon milk
1
teaspoon paprika
1
teaspoon oregano
1 1/2
cups grated & packed Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 Dice the onion very small and cook on medium in a little butter or olive oil for about 25 minutes until very browned.
  • 2 Put the ricotta and milk into a stand mixer or food processor and beat or mix until smooth and light and airy. Stir in the onion, paprika, and oregano. Place in a piping bag in the fridge until ready to use.
  • 3 Pack the Parmesan into tightly packed, very overflowing, tablespoons and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Do two batches of 6 each.
  • 4 Bake at 400ºF for about 5 minutes until slightly browned and bubbly.
  • 5 Remove from oven and, working quickly, mold the baked cheese round over the handle of a wooden spoon to form tubes. The cheese hardens very quickly so it's a good idea to have another person help with this step.
  • 6 Pipe the filling mixture into the shells and serve right away.

Step By Step  

Crunchy Parmesan shells are stuffed with a savory ricotta filling. What a great appetizer!

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Parmesan cheese bakes up into crispy little shells that hold cheesy caramelized onion filling. Yes, we did.

Once I figured out how to make crackers out of cheese, I knew the possibilities were endless.

Let's be clear – the crackers are made from cheese and only cheese! Just put it onto a baking sheet, pop it into the oven, and 5 minutes later you have crisp little crackers that you can mold into any shape you want.

I thought these little Parm crisps would be perfect for an appetizer that was a fun and savory twist on cannoli, the Italian dessert. So I filled them up with a whipped ricotta that was loaded with caramelized onions to make a little two-bite app that was packed with deep flavors.

Step one is to get the the onions caramelizing because that takes a while. Make sure you let them get nice and browned.

The Parm crisps are easy to make – just put mounds of Parm onto a baking sheet and cook about 5 minutes.

When they come out of the oven, make sure to form them quick because they harden fast. Use the handle of a wooden spoon as a mold and have a friend around to help do them all before they crisp up.

Then just pipe the filling into the shells and serve!
